  1. An Ultrasonic Wireless Sensor Network for Data Communication and Structural Health Monitoring

    SBC: X-Wave Innovations, Inc.            Topic: T12

    Sensor networks embedded on structures, such as pipes, bridges, railways, aircraft wings and fuselage, among others, are required to transfer data related to the health of the structure. This data is typically sent to a central location where it can be processed, displayed, and analyzed. Typical Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) uses embedded ultrasonic transducers exclusively for non-destructive ...

  2. Developing Commercial Quantum Resistance Standard Based on Epitaxial Graphene

    SBC: Graphene Waves, LLC            Topic: None

    Graphene Waves proposes to develop a quantum Hall resistance (QHR) standard based on graphene that can be deployed for general electrical calibration in industries. Current QHR standard is based on GaAs/AlGaAs heterostructure and requires expensive liquid helium to operate. The continuous increase in price and unstable supply chain of liquid helium limit the QHR standard to be only affordable by t ...
